Paul Scholes: Man United title celebrations better than 1999
Paul Scholes says Manchester United's trophy parade on Monday eclipsed the club's celebrations following their Treble in 1999
Paul Scholes says that Manchester United’s trophy parade on Monday eclipsed the club’s celebrations following their Treble in 1999.
Scholes was part of the Red Devils side who won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in the 1998-99 campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson.
And the veteran midfielder, who will be retiring along with Ferguson this summer, was stunned by the scenes in Manchester as United showed off their 13th Premier League trophy on an open-top bus parade around the city.
“I think we will remember this for a long time,” Scholes, who has made over 700 appearances for United, told MUTV.
“The scenes here are incredible. I know we won the Treble in 1999 but I don’t remember it being anything like this.
“This is amazing and it is doubly special for the manager after his last game at Old Trafford. The fans have come out to say goodbye, which is nice.
“I think the manager is the biggest attraction today but it was a big season after the failure of last year. We knew we had to bounce back and we have managed to do that.
“You can see what it does to you. All the hard work is worth it when you see this many people turn up and look so happy.”
